ASDA – Endless Refurbishment by Girosil®

As part of their ongoing long term maintenance commitment, Girosil® has once again been specified and used to secure the long term performance of the roof sheet end laps at the large ASDA Distribution facility in Washington Tyne & Wear. Tasked with providing a long term repair to previously treated leaking end laps, fully moisture tolerant coating system, Girosil® Edge RC-E was easily able to accommodate the challenges presented by this difficult to treat metal roof detail.

Girosil® Edge RC-E was recently renamed. You can enjoy the same great results with Giromax® Edgecoat.

Problem

A combination of on-site cutting, poor installation techniques, acid rain and pollution retention in critical roof overlaps and gutter overhangs, meant that the resultant corrosion was wreaking havoc on the profiled steel roof sheets.

Solution

Giromax provided ` proven external repair system to treat the cut edge corrosion on the profiled Plastisol/PVDF coated steel roof sheeting. Girosil® Edge RC-E was easily able to accommodate the challenges presented by the difficult to treat metal roof detail of this project.

Girosil® Edge RC-E

Girosil® systems provide an effective long term solution to edge corrosion. Caused by a combination of on-site cutting, poor installation techniques, acid rain and pollution retention in critical roof overlaps and gutter overhangs, the resultant corrosion can play havoc with profiled steel roof sheets and if not treated quickly and effectively can lead eventually to partial or complete roof replacement.

Girosil® Edge RC-E has been specifically developed to supersede the design limitations of older silicone treatments by overcoming both dependence on moisture free corrosion control and a vulnerability to impact and abrasion damage, especially from bird attack.

Fully moisture tolerant, Girosil® can be applied to wet surfaces, removing application restrictions and performance limitations. Girosil® can easily accommodate sheet movement and remains unaffected by UV and temperature, achieving robust lap edge encapsulation by hardening to a tough elastic coat with high impact absorption and damage resistance.​

Giromax oversee all installations to ensure it provides the ideal sustainable answer to all these problems helping to extend the life of roofs to preserve the value of the buildings
